What are the advantages of automating the slaking process?

Automatic slaker controls initially adjust the water flow to match the quicklime feed rate (often to a set ratio of 4:1 water to lime by weight). Once a stable operating temperature is reached, automatic controls fine tune the water flow to maintain a final slaking temperature set point.

Automating the process ensures that the slaker is running at the optimal temperature for lime slaking - producing the most effective and most efficient lime slurry for your process. Having the most effective and efficient lime slurry will save on quicklime costs and will indirectly reduce the carbon foot print of lime use by reducing lime consumption.
